Hat by Myaraa Details: Sustainably sourced straw is hand woven and sewn into a classic boater hat by experienced, fairly paid female artisans in the Myaraa workshop located in India. The artisans personally collect straw from local wheat fields, using high quality natural materials that are left in the fields after the farmers harvest the wheat. By paying their workers fair wages, Myaraa's founder, Namrata Lodha, prioritizes an ethical, sustainable and fair supply chain that starts with sourcing the fiber by-product by hand and then providing safe spaces for female artisans to turn the straw into an expertly made, light summer hat

Hat Size: 3.5" brim, 4" height 

Hat Made in India by local female artisans that are getting paid fair wages for their labor.
